Tried to I've up smoking last year and got DM for my trouble after 2 months of quitting. Lol not sure the 2 are related. Anyway Dx was enough stress so started again and not easy to quit.
I have smoked for nearly 40 years (start of high school) so not easy to quit. Anyway just bought 2 cartons but maybe when they are done will try this e- cigarette thing. Just maybe that will get me there.

Interesting that I'm not the only person equating quitting smoking with the onset of DM. When I quit I put on 40 pounds which I'm sure lead to IR which went in diagnosed as I never went to any doctor except for eye docs. The Untreated IR which continued untreated to D which was still untreated leading to my DKA.

So did quitting cause the onset or was the onset already there and quitting just magnified the problems?

I actually blamed the quitting for a while but that may have been the fear and depression at Dx - who knows.
I didn't put on much on quitting and was running around 138. Dropped 20 kg in the month before Dx and put back 10 once DM was under some control. Now dropping slowly and steadily with this WOE and decent control.
A little scared to try quitting again as what next. I know it is not a reasonable fear but it is there.

On a lark, and after reading the OT of 3 weeks ago, I purchased an E-Cigarette and its cartridges. I thoroughly enjoy it, and even though I gave up real cigarettes, 25+ years ago, it has not driven me back to those nasties.

I would think that "vaping" would be a great way for someone wishing to quit the real thing as you are still getting your nicotine fix; albeit without all of the tars and crap the cig companies have put in them.

I can blow smoke rings just like with the real McCoy, but there is no discernable smell. It is not smoke that you are exhaling, just a vapor trail.

If not sure where to get them, check with your local tobacconist.

cheers to you my friend! i already not using the real cigar for 2 weeks now. i enjoy vaping more now with flavored e-juices. i had a chemist test the juices i use and one premium juice stands out from the rest that will have no impact to me or with my D. so anyone who would try vaping might want to have an extra time in finding out what exactly on the juice we inhale.
